    Limited run from years ago. Your best bet would be the CPF Marketplace, unless you happen to find a dealer with some old stock.

    Yeah they pop up in the MP every so often. I just sold my C2 and a guy sold his E2E like last week.

    Im one of the few people to actually buy the C2-CJ at a retail store very recently. I googled it and found a place in California that still had one. it was a long shot since it is rather old. early 2001 or so I think.

    I was hoping that I would get incredibly lucky and have by T1A match my T1-TI (0379). Alas, it ended up being A00975. I suppose I'm now in the market for Titan 0975

    Im back in HK for the holidays. I went back to SupremeCo to get an Icon Modus1. While paying for it I was looking at the display that was behind the counter. I saw a U2 Porky for $4500 HKD but more importantly a 6BL standing next to a 3BL!

    I wasnt sure but I asked to see it and then asked for the price. Since the U2 had a price on it maybe the 3BL would be similarly for sale. The cashier didnt know the model of the light, so she can look it up in her inventory system. After I told her it is a "3BL" she said it was $860 HKD which comes out to about $108 USD. She had another employee go to their back store room and find a new one for me. They had 2 left including the one I bought.

    I of course bought it. Now I have both the 6BL and a mint 3BL!!!

    It was still sealed in the box.

    haha. Actually I used the same camera. The problem is that the pictures I took in Supremeco, last time, were hard to take. I was rushed as I didnt want to upset the store employees. The lighting was harsh and I had to shoot thru surefire display case glass.

    Also my uncle, here, let me borrow his laptop for this trip. So Im able to upload pics while here in HK. Last time, I only had my iphone to go online. my options for forum interaction is rather limited with an iphone.

    That is what I told SF. They should make the E2D in Tan.

    +1 to that!!!



    Heres a new one I got a few days ago.
    Won it on eBay. It had a SG head and SG tailcap on it.
    I prefer the black with it.
    No laser engraving on the sides either.

    Is that a Desert Sand Brown finish on an E1e body, same as on the M952V/Scout Light/etc? Factory finish?

    I never see the cool stuff on eBay

    Certainly looks gold to me. Don't worry about the engraving - you need the matching head and tailcap first!

    I find it strange that it exists at all...and especially that it made it into the hands of a CPF member.

    Al - do you know if any other golden E1e lights were produced and given out, other than your one?

    I suppose a small number were made... it was a long time ago... I seem to recall there being at least a few others, perhaps they were given away.
    But it is strange for just a body to turn up.

    I'm sure I have a photo that would help with this but I've just been checking. Found a different golden-anodised SureFire, one that has never been seen by CPF, but not the Golden E1e's I was looking for

    It looks like it from the photo, but is the clip of your E1e-SIZE15 silver instead of black?

    This is a Surefire, Jetbeam and Solarforce hybrid. Obviously the body is a C2, a 18650 bored C2 body; head is a Solarforce SS head and the tail is from a Jetbeam TC-R3.

    All fits nicely together! =D
